I am a journalist with significant experience covering technology, finance, economics, and business around the world. As the founding editor of Verdict.co.uk I reported on how technology is changing business, political trends, and the latest culture and lifestyle. I have covered the rise of bitcoin and cryptocurrency since 2012 and have charted its emergence as a niche technology into the greatest threat to the established financial system the world has ever seen and the most important new technology since the internet itself. I have worked and written for CityAM, the Financial Times, and the New Statesman, amongst others.Source

Bitcoin and cryptocurrency prices have swung wildly over the last few months following a huge rally in the first half of the year. The bitcoin price has somewhat recovered from a disastrous bear market in 2018 which saw bitcoin touch lows of a little over $3,000—thought to be just under the price of creating (or mining) new bitcoin and making energy-intensive mining operations unsustainable. Now, a group of researchers have come up with what they claim is a cheaper and more energy efficient way to mine bitcoin that could mean the previous bitcoin price floor moves far lower.
